We would like to thank everyone for your kind messages of condolence and your support at this time.

It is with great sadness that we at Schofield Contracting Ltd announce the death of our founder, director, and friend, Jim Schofield.

Jim passed away unexpectedly on 10th February 2024, coming as a terrible shock for his family and all at Schofield’s.

We are heartbroken to have lost not only our director and great friend, but also the cornerstone of the company.
